Can anyone tell me if the version of the movie M that can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jewTfVC7XD4 is public domain? I can't tell if it is restored and under copyright or if it is still public domain.

Thanks.

I liked this one a little better because it has soft subs (it makes it easier for DVD burning) I was just wondering whether or not this version is also Public Domain. The version of M already on the archive has burned in subtitles.

Soft subtitles that I'm used to are subtitles contained in a separate data file (e.g., an SRT file) that are added to the video when played. The video file and subtitle file must have the same name. Soft subs can also refer to subtitle files that are muxed directly into a video file, like MKV and OGV. The nice thing about soft subs is that they can be edited.
